The miniature worlds of Maico Akiba

Maico Akiba, whose series, “100 years later,” we previously featured, has another project simply titled SEKAI, or “world.” In it, she imagines miniature ecosystems growing on the backs of other animals. There are people but also remnants of civilization like electric poles or shops often overrun by weeds and vines. It’s almost like a reverse-Noah’s Arc.

In 2012 the series was commercialized in the form of cell phone straps. But I like the detail-heavy originals better.

  1. Yeah, that’s great, I have the same Safari Ltd Carnegie Collection Woolly Mammoth that she uses for her “art”. I guess I should glue stuff on the back of my toy too and make some awesome art just like hers. She is so talented at gluing other people’s stuff together.
